Aftercare for Tape in Hair Extensions

Immediate Care

Do not shampoo, wet hair or exercise to the point of perspiration for 48 hours after application, as the bond needs adequate time to cure. No exceptions.

Extra Styling Time

Leave a little extra time for styling until you are accustomed to working with your extra volume and/or length.


Apply conditioner only from the mid-shaft or low ponytail down. Keep the conditioner off your scalp and away from the panels.


Only use products your salon professional recommends for your extensions. All of our Products are hair extension certified!

Press Panels

Be sure you are pressing your extension panels together when you are blow drying. This will reaffirm the bond each time you are drying. Power dry panels and scalp area before applying tension with a brush.


Brush, brush, brush! Brushing your hair is very important. This will allow you to prevent & rid your hair of tangles while keeping your hair looking and feeling beautiful. When hair
is wet, hold panels, removing any tangles by working from ends upward. We have two brushes, the Premium Boar Detangling Brush and the Wet/Dry Detangling Brush.


Sleeping with a silk pillowcase not only feels great but helps prevent your hair from tangling. For more tips, read our Sleeping with Hair Extensions.


Chlorine is not hair-friendly. If entering the pool or ocean, apply a leave-in conditioner mid to ends and put into a ponytail. NO BRAIDS while swimming.


Pre-book your extension follow up and maintenance, no later than 6-8 weeks after your initial application.
